The Unknown Show with Bud Smith

The Unknown Show with Bud Smith Unknown Press is an independent press. The Unknown Show interviews artists doing beautiful work on the edge of the underground and the vast light beyond.

Born and raised at the New Jersey shore on Thanksgiving day 1981, he has worked a variety of manual labor jobs; heavy construction in power plants and refineries, stone mason-- building waterfalls, carpenter, painter, general all around demolition, just like a Bruce Springteen song. Currently he drives his car in and out of New York City everyday, commuting in complete silence, contemplating plot, brevity, hope, indifference and love in the warzones of the wild. At night, he parks his car on the street. It always surprises him when he finds his car is still there when the sun comes up. He says, "Heh. Look at that!" Bud has also worked as an editor on various small press publications and as a recording artist in a music studio. He is currently finishing up a novel about a man faking a terminal illness for a nurse and checking himself into the worst hospital in America. Look for that novel and a new collection of short stories in 2013.

The Unknown Show is an interview programming focusing on writers/art, message if you have a need to be on. Bud Smith is a writer from NYC who talks to crazy people for free because he's crazy too, apparently. He writes, does music and bad drawings and works heavy construction in New Jersey like a sukka. Listen in to hear him curse and ask questions and be a typical ignorant working class slug with people who deserve a 'lil better. Tuesdays 7pm. Spread the word, looking for guests, 'cause everybody's doing something,
